Professional Development Fellowships

The LKY School Professional Development Programme is a non-degree programme aimed at providing highly-qualified civil servants an opportunity to examine key challenges in policy formulation and implementation in Singapore, to generate practical insights and strategies in a distinctively global environment, to enhance their respective roles in public governance. The Fellows will spend time at the LKY School for professional growth, leadership development, and cultural immersion.

Through the Programme, Fellows pursue an informal study under the guidance of an LKY School academic advisor. Rather than enrolling in a specific structured programme of graduate study, the Professional Development Programme is ideal for experienced civil servants to take full advantage of the full interdisciplinary aspects of the LKY School, through a self-paced form of education.
